So I’ve Torn My Meniscus, Why Should I Have My Knee Scoped?

1. The meniscus is the major shock absorber in your knee.
2. Once there is a tear in the meniscus it can easily propagate.
3. If the tear gets larger, more meniscus has to be removed at the time of surgery, resulting in a greater force to the articular cartilage of the knee joint, increasing your risk of early onset arthritis.
